Cincinnati head coach Mick Cronin will miss today’s game with VCU after it was discovered that he has an “unruptured aneurysm”, the school announced on Saturday morning.
Cronin had gone in for testing on what the school termed lingering headaches when the aneurysm was discovered. He’s under doctor’s orders to step away from coaching until the issue can be resolved.
Coach Cronin is doing well,” UC team physician Dr. Michael Donaworth said in a statement. “While he would love to be courtside, he understands our decision. His health is our biggest priority.”
“I appreciate the UC Health medical community for all they have done to get to the bottom of my issue as quickly as possible,” Cronin said. “Obviously, I am being held out of coaching the team for precautionary reasons which I fully understand. I have total confidence in my coaching staff and players that they will be focused and ready to play today.”
Associate head coach Larry Davis will coach the team in Cronin’s absence.
